Johnny Rotten

John Lydon (born January 31, 1956), better known by moniker Johnny Rotten (a nickname deriving from the state of his teeth), was the iconoclastic lead singer of the Sex Pistols and Public Image Ltd. With his leery, swaggering and sarcastic manner he laid down a new template of rebellious youth and band front man that continues to be imitated today.

Today Lydon is a freelance counter-culture journalist in Los Angeles and has reported from events such as the Seattle Riots.
